Enable support for deploying Virtualized and Containerized networking workloads in Kubernetes based Cloud regions through MultiCloud/k8s plugin.


  • Enable the support for Helm charts based deployment.
  • Show case using vFirewall use case.
    • Show case Legacy model (where firewall, traffic generator and sink are VMs)
    • Show case Hybrid model (where firewall is a container, traffic generator as a container and sink is VMs)

  1. Does this use case apply to the VFC flows?

    1. In R4, only helm charts based application (including VNFs)  description is supported. And hence SO based flows would be supported in R4.  TOSCA and ksonnet based VNF/application description are for future releases. Since VFC expects TOSCA based description, VFC flows are not supported in this release.

  2. Thanks, Srini. One additional question, is there plan to create a VNF Helm charts requirements (similar to what VNFRQTS has done for heat template)? I don't find such work items in this page or the VNFRQTS page.

    1. That is something in our plate. But, we will be doing towards end of Dublin release. But, note that many of the service design, onboarding requirements are similar to HEAT based VNFs, except for adding new artifact types and Day 0 configuration profiles. With respect to monitoring too, I don't see much difference from  HEAT based VNFs.  We may want to provide more options though for monitoring such as 'usage of node-exporter' or prometheus client in the VNF.   On the configuration side, we like to add additional option of configuration using K8S operators.


      1. Thanks, Srini! These are great information.
